Even worse now!
Minding the small company of a friend whilst she is away. Yesterday ,under her umbrella, I took out the Ta steMa ster, the Ama teurGour met and a big gun from one of our city’s marketing departments (spaces deliberate as I don’t want them googling themselves and finding this site). Ta stemaster: Ri ch Keam* blog and twitter; Ad am Ro b*rts (The Am ateur Gou rm*t) blog and twitter.
Basically, the first guy gets paid $100 000 to be in WA for 6 months and go on tours and do iconic experiences. The second was flown out from LA for a week to speak at a blogging conference. The exposure for these guys (and potentially my friend’s company) is huge – apparently 4.5 million on facebook alone. So, can we say pressure?
I was very uptight beforehand but it went well. Today I’ve been cleaning up the aftermath and handling the social media, along with regular office admin stuff. I started at 5 am and, 14 hours later, I am still working. This is the only non-driving day I have this week and it definitely doesn’t count as a day off: last down time was Tuesday last week and next one will be next Wednesday.
I don’t want to whinge but I find it very hard handling all the demands of running a small business as well as my regular full time job. I just wish I was better at saying no when asked to do extra stuff!
